Open-source EL(T) platform
Remote
Full-time
About Airbyte

Airbyte is an open-source data integration engine that syncs data from applications, APIs & databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations.

About the role

Airbyte is the open-source standard for EL(T). We enable data teams to replicate data from applications, APIs, and databases to data warehouses, lakes, and other destinations. We believe only an open-source approach can solve the problem of data integration, as it enables us to cover the long tail of integrations while enabling teams to adapt pre-built connectors to their needs.

 

Within just 18 months, we've built 150+ connectors and we've had 9,000+ companies syncing data with us. We've raised $181M from some of the world's top investors (Benchmark, Accel, Altimeter, Coatue, Y Combinator, etc.) and believe in product-led growth, where we build something awesome and let our product bring the users, rather than an outbound sales engine with cold calls.

 

Airbyte is remote friendly, with most of the team still based in Silicon Valley. We’re fully transparent as a company. Our company handbookculture & valuesstrategy and roadmap are open to all.

 

Opportunity

As the Eng Manager for the Connector Development Kit Team, you will own evolving the Connector Development Kit (CDK) from a low-code to a no-code solution for building connectors. The CDK is key to Airbyte's goal of being the only ETL platform that can support all of a user's connectors.

The CDK will make it so easy to build a connector that it would be possible for anyone who wants to move data to do so in a UI. This team also owns the contract team that uses the CDK to build and maintain connectors. You will be building the connector factory that will bring Airbyte from 100 to 500 connectors in 2022.

Technology

The platform is built in Java, but connectors can be built in any language, as they run as Docker containers. Most of our connectors are actually built in Python today.
